The Day In Music began somewhere in the 5AM hour -- a particular cruelty on a Saturday morning -- when MissEight came into my bedroom to give me her freshly-drawn pictures. It's sort of hard to stay mad when you are looking at this.

Nice people often pass on interesting music to me, which I greatly appreciate. There's so much out there, you can and do miss a lot. So I thank WN and Rob for the vids. Let us begin quietly, with a live string quartet cover of Jimi Hendrix's version of "Hey Joe."

Turtle Island Quartet, "Hey Joe"

I'm digging this new song by English artist PJ Harvey. It's very strange -- loping, tremulous, quoting an Eddie Cochran song -- nothing but good to my ears.

PJ Harvey, "The Words That Maketh Murder"

I collect songs with my name in the title. There's quite a few. Here's another one from a South Florida punkpop band from 1979, and it's even spelled correctly, HOO HAH!

The Reactions, "Marianne"

(Speaking of Marianne, which is me, you can now see my song/video of "Winnebago Man We Love You" on the "Winnebago Man" official film site! F$&K YEAH!)

Let us end with a few very enjoyable videos of people in Alabama (the state, not the band) giving a good go at some karaoke. There for complete tunelessness and 12 beers, go us all.

"100 Dolla Bills Y'all"

"Brown Eyed Girl"

"Very Drunk Girl"
